List it now and if the construction starts before you are able to sell or during escrow, then consider offering a credit to the buyer for some new landscaping. <br/><br/>With dropping state and local budgets, unless the road work is imminent or has already started, I would not count on it or use it as a deciding factor on whether or not to sell now.

Follow your first mind and sell the house and accept your new job. As long as you price your home aggressively and it shows well, buyers will understand that this is temporary road construction.

Not sure where you're located but this is a Seller's market in Central Florida and homes are moving fast in most areas.<br/><br/>Inventory is down and demand is high, so you will probably move the property pretty fast. Again, it depends where you live and it's important to be realistic about he listing price.&nbsp; Wed, 12 Dec 2012 19:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-have-been-preparing-to-sell-my-home-but-just-found-out-that-there-will-be-road-construction-fairl/471142/ 2012-12-12T19:53:00Z
